Does the voice of the host of our new Podcast — Power to Heal — sound familiar? 🎙️ Veteran broadcaster Wayne Cox has lived on the Semiahmoo Peninsula for more than 40 years. He’s raised three children here, welcomed six grandchildren, and has strong ties to Peace Arch Hospital, both as a patient and as a family member of a loved one needing care. Peace Arch Hospital is so much more than a health care facility. It’s a community legacy, a place of healing, innovation, and progress, it’s where babies take their first breath and some patients take their last. Wayne is a fixture in this community and brings his own personal stories to life in these episodes. Listen in now!

Breathing is something we all take for granted until we, or someone we love, no longer can. And that039;s an experience that we don039;t wish upon anybody. 💔 A new bronchoscope will help diagnose and treat breathing difficulties and lung problems at Peace Arch Hospital. But we need your help to purchase this expensive, diagnostic tool. Will you help ensure that your loved ones — and our entire community — can receive this much needed care close to home? Making a gift is easy online at pahfoundation.ca/give Thank you in advance for any amount that you can give today.
The Bronchoscope is a small, but mighty piece of equipment. It will help us diagnose critically ill patients with or recovering from COVID-19. And it will also help us manage complications such as bleeding of the lungs, lung collapse, or worse. Doctors, respiratory therapists, and pulmonologists can use the bronchoscope to detect the cause of breathing difficulties and lung problems. It can also be used to manage other issues such as tumours, infection, and bleeding, and helps medical teams monitor a patient’s breathing when they are using an artificial airway during intubation or tracheostomy. So please, give generously today by visiting pahfoundation.ca/give and help us obtain a new Bronchoscope for #PeaceArchHospital. We will forever be grateful for your support! 💕 #Bronchoscope #healthylungs #recovery

Rosemary Heights Elementary School039;s Division 4 class was looking forward to leaving a legacy of Rosemary families and students caring for one another and their community. They knew that physical, mental and emotional well-being is an important priority right now as we work through the global pandemic. The class held a #wellnesswalk for the entire school and asked that families donate at least $2 each. Their goal was $800 for this third party fundraiser, but they surpassed that and raised $1,021.55! They have directed their gift towards the Emergency Department at Peace Arch Hospital. Thank you, Rosemary Height Elementary, for this wonderful contribution!!
This year039;s #canadaday invites Canadians to show empathy, understanding & openness. 🇨🇦 May we all take time today to reflect on the violence that Canadian institutions may have inflicted, the impact that this violence continues to have today on Indigenous peoples and racialized communities, and the journey that each of us must take toward reconciliation and living together.

Patient Testimonial: "The air-conditioned maternity ward at Peace Arch Hospital was the perfect place to meet our new friend Quinn last night. Baby boy and his mama are awesome. Staff here are amazing. Hope you are keeping cool ❤️" Messages like these remind us that everything we do has an impact for many years to come! Back in 2014, we funded the $5.3M maternity ward renovation and expansion including eight modern, spacious, single-family birthing rooms. From then on, mothers have been offered the ideal birthing experience of labouring, delivering, and then staying with their babies (and their partner or support person) in the same room throughout their time on the ward. This has allowed parents, family, and babies to be together in a private, comfortable, and relaxing space. Thank you to all of our donors who have helped to make this and other projects possible!
